My favourite story book

16 July, 2017

Junior

My favourite story book is Pinocchio. It is ia fairy tale. My friend gave it to me for my birthday.

An old carpenter called Geppeto made a wooden puppet. A fairy made him walk and talk. The carpenter named him Pinocchio.

Pinnocchio lied to the fairy. So his nose grew very long. It is the most interesting part of the story. Pinocchio looked very funny with a long nose. Later, he found Gepetto and promised not to tell lies again.

It has a happy ending. I learnt that it’s not good to tell lies. I like to read Pinocchio again.

Bob Odenkirk’s 6 favorite books

The Dog of the South by Charles Portis (Overlook, $16). A hilarious narrator goes on a loony mission to catch up with his runaway wife, following the trail of credit card receipts she leaves from Arkansas to Belize. He’s driven by resentment and pettiness — and yet he is also clearly entertained by the world around him. This is, to me, a very American voice.

True Grit by Charles Portis (Overlook, $8). Two books on one list — this guy outdid himself! Portis’ most famous book is a more traditionally structured story than Dog of the South, and yet its central voice is so likable — somehow cynical and, at the same time, forgiving.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (Dover, $4.50). Do I need to waste your time telling you this is the book of books? Sorry about the N-word, but it must be taken in the context of the time it was written. Plus it’s clear to me that Twain was making a strong (and sly) statement about the humanity of those who were then labeled the N-word.

Tragically I Was an Only Twin: The Complete Peter Cook edited by William Cook (Arrow, $15). This is a collection of pieces the great Peter Cook either wrote or improvised. Cook, to me, represents the most naturally funny man there ever was. He could spin comedy out of the smallest comment.

Swing Hammer Swing! by Jeff Torrington (Vintage U.K., $15). After reading an energetic, positive review buried deep within The New York Times one day, I bought this Glasgow-set first novel and was thrilled by the writing: Swing Hammer Swing! is funny, clever, and bleak as hell. I wrote Torrington a fan letter, the only one I’ve ever written. Never received a reply. No hard feelings.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (Grand Central, $9). You already know this. Lyrical writing. A child’s point of view, but done with intelligence and sensitivity, and a lesson at the end that is the only lesson you ever need to know to become a good person. So say I.

Bob Odenkirk was the co-creator of the influential HBO series Mr. Show and a prominent co-star on AMC’s Breaking Bad. A Load of Hooey , his new book of comic essays, was released last week.

Essay: My Favorite Book

I have a big collection of books because I am fond of
reading. So my aunt presented to one book on my birthday. This book is my most favorite
book. It is ‘Panchtantra’ translated in English.
Panchtantra is a book originally written in Sanskrit by a
pundit named Vishnu Sharma. This book is translated in almost all the main
languages in the world. It contains a number of stories. The characters in
these stories are all animals. There is a lion named Pingalaka; there are two
bulls named Karataka Sanjivaka; there is a fox named Damanaka. A deer Named
Chars, A pegion named Chitragreeva and so many others. These animals represent
human nature and tendencies. They are representative of good qualities like
goodness faithfulness, helpfulness, truthfulness friendship and many others. There
are other animals who represent bad qualities like cunningness, enmity,
jealousy, untruthfulness cheating and other.

The stones in this book are really wonderful and interest, their
style is narrative. They are easy to understand. Each story gives us a moral
teaching at its end. It is very helpful in practical life. Though the stories
are old, they are fresh and true for ever I like reading this book again and
again. I tell the stories to my friends and my younger brothers and sisters. We
all enjoy reading Panchtantra together.
